comment I am a beginner piano player, have no idea how to emphasize a downbeat
I think you misread. I 'beat' myself up endlessly about accuracy, and it is not that she leaves gross errors uncorrected. I think that my point is that expression comes from tiny adjustments, not on the scale of 'deviation from tempo' or 'rubato'.

comment Early-intermediate Ralph Vaughan Williams Piano?
@oge normally I'd shrug, but as part of the beta process I agree with you. Advertising discussions of topicality and such is good.

comment Looking for a 'Danse Macabre' baroque antecedent
I'm embarassed to say that the only Dies Irae that I'm sure that I recognize is not the same melody as Danse Macabre, which may well merely indicate a lacuna in my musical education.

I'm not sure I care to call this in the same bucket with attempts to play shazam by remote control with pop songs, but that's just my opinion.
